I had to re install everything incl. SeaMonkey but, I backed up
everything before I started. How do I restore my inbox?
Exit from SM before doing any of the following.
Find the folder in which your current (new, and presumably empty) inbox
is located, and copy your saved inbox (filename = inbox) to that folder,
replacing the existing (new, empty) inbox.
(There's also a file inbox.msf which I understand to be an index file
for inbox. Let's let someone more expert than I confirm - but so far as
I know, you should delete the "inbox.msf" file from your new folder, and
SM will automatically regenerate it when you open your inbox.)
The inbox folder location depends on your operating system and choices
you made when you installed SM. In my case, it's in "Local Folders"
under "Mail" under my "xxxxxxxx.slt" folder. If you don't use the
global inbox, it could be in a folder named for your ISP, again under
the "Mail" folder.
Back up anything you're about to delete or overwrite, just in case.
